We all pretend it’s normal…
We all pretend that life in NY is normal. Just today I had the day off, which isn’t usually for a Thursday, and I decided to go to the gym before noon. I got on a train at 10am and...

What If I Told You That You Can Have a Different Life?
I know I will sound very naïve now, but I had a recent revelation I would like to share with you. I started thinking about the choices we make and why we actually make them. Those who have rea...

Poor Rich Kids
I have mentioned money in NYC on Just Like NY a few times already. There is a lot of money here, and people spend lots of it on a variety of weird and stupid things sometimes....

Do You Want To Be Famous?
Because I’ve been living here for almost five years now, I tend to forget what kind of place NYC is. It’s where fantasy keeps meeting reality. The longer you live here, the more “...

Double Standard – Why Are Women Treated Differently?
I had a situation that I wrote about on Facebook, but I want to write more about it, because there is more to it.  So there was a guy, a customer of mine who I had met maybe three times, who&n...

Why Having a Boyfriend Will Not Make You Happy?
When I was a teenage girl (that is one week ago… just kidding), my biggest dream was to have a boyfriend. Especially since a weekly column called “Love Story” from “Bravo&r...

What Happens Once You Stop Caring If People Like You?
What happens once you stop caring if people like you…? It’s simple – your life starts changing. Yes, it’s that huge. One day I realized that it happened to me – that ...

Men and Sex
What is it that men want when it comes to sex…? The thing is: they want to have everything. Including a virgin. That’s the funniest part. I didn’t have a lot of sex in my life (c...

The Most Annoying American Family
I must say, I’m so fed up with these fake images and fake lives that are all over social media now. And there is one family that makes me especially angry. You’ve p...

Step 53 - Do You Have A Choice?
I believe I have already written about what I am about to say in this post, but I’ll be coming back to the subject, because it’s really important. I notice more and more often that we ge...

Step 52 - Don’t Assume (Or In Another Words, Don’t Judge)
We’re all guilty of it. We judge. And even if you say or think that you don’t, I have bad news for you – yes, you do. We all classify people based on our knowledge of the...

Stereotypes. Have Enough Class To Not Say Anything

Men with Golden Tongues


I’m surprised myself that I didn’t call my website „Men of New York”. Since I’m single, men attract my attention all the time. And since the same thing I recently wrote about women goes for men over here, I’m in a fix. How can I possibly pick just one item from the fascinating mix I’m surrounded with? In New York, I meet all nationalities I could ever dr

Red is for Walking


  Try not to walk At a pedestrian crossing in New York you will see either a white light (the equivalent of polish green) or a red one. Both have the same meaning: just walk. When a New Yorker crosses a street, he or she is not looking what light it is: they look if there’s a car approaching. Sometimes I even feel the lights are completely disposable here. Sure, the drivers will honk,

New York Women


 Nolita, Manhattan June 2013 If you happen to be a man who loves beautiful women – you have to come to New York City. Some say Polish women are beautiful (and of course they are!) but New York women are even more gorgeous. Why is that? Because women from all over the world come here. You will meet many „mixtures” here – women whose parents come from different parts of

DISTANCES!!!


The fact that New York offers so many attractions, cultural events and concerts makes your heart grow but also can get on your last nerve. When I check weekly listings of what’s in store for me in NY, on the one hand I’m happy that the city offers so much, but on the other I realize that I won’t be able to take part even in a moderate part of those events. There are a couple of

Loneliness & the City


What is it that makes us love New York City? It’s the sheer diversity of people, nationalities and characters. The so-called mix, which makes it one of the most unique places on earth. It would be difficult to find another city inhabited by folks from literally all over the world. Close to eight milion human beings with views differing from the ones we held so far. And with their heads ope

Body Heat


Hudson river running The popular opinion has it that Americans are overweight. OK, morbidly obese. It’s true that you will see many of them whose mere appeareance will make you start a diet. The same thing is true about New York, but not entirely. What may surprise you here is a large numer of people with perfect bodies. Doing sports is always fashionalbe here, always welcome and gen

Don’t Fear Being Yourself


There are many reasons to visit New York – practically every post on my website discusses why it is worthy to come over and spend some time here. Still, if I had to say what is the chief advantage of living in New York City, I’d point to the feeling of freedom that I first experienced here. What is the reason for it? Since there are millions of people living here, it’s easy to

Bachelorette party at a gay bar? No!


Gay Pride party, June 2013 I will be coming back to the topic of gay men in New York often, since I genuinely like the guys and I’m interested in them (still, I have to admit, straight guys interest me even more). It’s worth to investigate the gay club scene, especially if it happens to be populated by women dressed up as princesses. Once you spot a princess, you know you walked in
